Jane Egan - President

I have been a member of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association- Northern New Jersey Chapter (formerly EWGA) since 2012 and have been able to take advantage of the many offerings of this association on the local, regional and national level.  

Making lifelong friends, learning new things, socializing, networking for business, competing with others as well as myself, and being part of a team are all positive experiences that I have enjoyed during my tenure with this wonderful organization.  

I am newly retired and now have the time to give back to this organization that has been so good to me.  I have 38 years of experience in successfully operating a large non-profit service organization, the Meadowlands Area YMCA.  I understand what it means and how to provide programs and services to meet the needs of a community. 

I look forward to using my past experience to work with a fine group of volunteers to make our chapter one of the premier women’s golf groups in New Jersey.

Karen Stepsus, Vice President

I’ve been a member of the Northern New Jersey chapter since 2011. And, since joining the LPGA Amateur Golf Association, I have participated in various chapter golf leagues, served as NNJ’s Marketing and Communications Director in the past, and have also had the opportunity to travel for Championship and Cup (match play) LPGA Amateur tournaments. Along the way, I have met so many wonderful women, who share a passion for playing golf, and some of whom I now consider my closest friends. 

I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to serve as your NNJ Vice President to promote and grow the women’s golf game on a local level. I have shared many good times with you, our members…a fantastic group of women. And, I look forward to sharing and providing our membership with great opportunities in 2020, on and off the golf course.  

 We need to get the word out and get women excited about playing this wonderful sport. If you have any ideas, or can volunteer some of your time to help grow our Chapter, I’d love to hear from you.  I’ll look forward to seeing you this year, and look forward to a wonderful year of exciting events, leagues, social and educational opportunities!

My first full year with the LPGA Amateurs was 2018.  I was a new golfer and was looking to  meet other women that loved golf and to find more opportunities to play.  Because of LPGA Amateurs, I’ve played in different leagues, participated in several events am playing more and more golf each year.  I joined the board in 2019 and am serving the second year of my 2 year term as Director of Leagues and Golf Education.  </p><p>Professionally, I am in a leadership position at a large pharmaceutical company where I am responsible for implementing and managing technology platforms.  As I move into my 2<sup>nd</sup> year on the board and I am excited to leverage what I learned last year, along with my professional experience to help grow and expand on what our chapter offers to our members.</p><p>I’m thankful for the experience I have had thus far with LPGA AGA NNJ and look forward to being a part of the future growth of the organization.

Understands local golf rules. Keeps pace of play. Understands How to keep a handicap and the purpose of keeping a handicap. Communicates to all league players on inclement death. May coordinate social events. 


A mentor is an experienced, but not necessarily good golfer who guides a new golfer on pace of play, basic rules and proper etiquette on and off the golf course. Also, a mentor may guide the new member on how to participate in other LPGA Amateurs - Northern New Jersey  events.


If a substitute player is needed in a league and there are none available, a regular league player may bring a non-member ONCE as a guest substitute for that day. The substitute player pays the greens fee like any other substitute player. If a guest plans on substituting more than once, they are required to join LPGA-AGA NNJ  and pay the substitute fee. This can happen at any time during the season.


Since LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey prepays the golf course in advance of the season, there will be no refunds. It is our policy that we will not provide refunds for missed events or to league members for league play.  Members are provided with a list of potential substitutes. Also, the league coordinator provides the league members with the amount golf cost per week.  If a league participant is unable to play in a given week, it will be up to the league participant to find a substitute and settle the cost of golf between the substitute and the league participant.  In the circumstance where we have a scheduled event that is on the same day as league play, it will be up to the league participant to find a substitute as outlined above.   The LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey chapter will not refund league participants for league play to enable them to participate in another event.

For each visitor to our website, our web server automatically recognizes no information regarding the domain or email address.  The information we collect is:

• Used to improve the content of our Web page.

• Never shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.  
A user must provide contact information (such as name, email and address) to register themselves and credit card information to make payments on this site.   If we have trouble processing a credit card transaction, we use the information to contact the user.       

Pictures may be taken at any LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey event.  These photos could potentially be shown on the web site or in the newsletter.  If  you have any objection to appearing in such public photos, please notify the event coordinator. 


 Call the golf course after 3:30 p.m. (for 9-hole leagues) to inquire whether league play will occur on that day. For 18-hole leagues, speak with your league coordinator to see how they want to handle it. All league cancellations are rescheduled after the regular season ends – a maximum of 2 times. This limit is based on course feedback.


The LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey Chapter (unlike many other  Chapters) does not currently have a mandatory attendance policy.  Some Chapters require a certain percentage of league days played (including those played by alternates) because it enables the Chapter to improve tee times and secure courses from year to year.

We ask that you provide your league coordinators feedback if you are receiving minimal response when seeking alternates.

Your cooperation with the policy is greatly appreciated!


We are women with a passion for golf who come together for fitness, fun, friendship and professional networking.
We offer programs and events where you can meet and connect with engaging women of all ages, with all levels of golf experience, from a broad spectrum of career paths.

In keeping in the spirit of the mission of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association - Northern New Jersey would like to initiate the following weekend events pairing guidelines:
When registering for an event, please indicate your ONE playing partner in the registration.  Please make sure that your playing partner will be registering for this event so that we can accommodate all requests.  Please take this opportunity to get to know others in the chapter, especially our new members. This will also make setting up the pairings and tee times less complex for the event coordinator.


The safety and well-being of our members and our community are our top priorities. Due to the serious public health emergency created by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have decided to suspend all in-person chapter activities and registrations for future events until at least the beginning of April.  We will monitor the evolving situation and continue to provide updates as they become available through our website, Facebook, Instagram and email.

We thank you, our valued members for understanding this shared challenge. Take care of yourself, your family, and your loved ones. We look forward to seeing you once we are able to return to our normal lives.

Leagues start the week of May4


All leagues are exclusive to members of the LPGA Amateurs NNJ Chapter. A member must be in good standing with annual membership paid in full.

League Fee:  There is a $30 administration fee for each league you join. There is NO discount if you join multiple leagues. The $30 fee supports league administration expenses.

Greens Fees:  All leagues require payment in full at registration. LPGA Amateurs NNJ pays in advance for all tee times and maintains an extensive list of substitutes. 

Refunds: Please review the refund policy

It is the responsibility of the registered player to “sell” her place on the league roster if she is unable to fulfill her league commitment. The league committee may provide some assistance in that effort; however, there is no guarantee that a replacement player may be identified. Situations will be handled on an individual basis.

Unable to Play: League members are responsible to arrange in advance for a substitute.  Members should:

  • Attempt to rotate substitute play among different golfers listed for the league, in order to allow all to have access to play 
  • Call or email people on the substitute list for your league
  • Call or email someone on the substitute list from another night, keeping league level in mind
  • Contact your coordinator or another league member if you are unable to find a substitute or are going to be late
  • Contact your league coordinator in advance of play to notify her that you will not be playing, and who will be your substitute for that day
  • Make arrangements for the substitute to reimburse you directly

Late Arrival:  Late arrivals vary by course but they will try to accommodate late arrivals within reason.

Handicap Maintenance:  All LPGA Amateurs NNJ members receive a handicap service enrollment included with their membership dues and are encouraged to maintain a handicap using Post a Score on  

Inclement Weather Policy: Review our policy 

Guest Policy: If a substitute player is needed in a league and there are none available, a regular league player may bring a non-member ONCE as a guest substitute for that day.  The substitute player pays the greens fee like any other substitute player.  If a guest plans on substituting more than once, they are required to join LPGA Amateurs NNJ and pay the substitute fee.  This can happen at any time during the season.

Schedule:  Leagues do not play on Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day. Leagues make up that date on what would be the week after the scheduled end date. If a particular league would be scheduled to end on August 19, the new end date would be on August 26.

Code of Conduct:  All league players are expected to conduct themselves appropriately on the golf course.  Players are expected to follow all local rules and rules of behavior, including Dress Code. LPGA Amateurs NNJ reserves the right to terminate a player’s participation in the league if found not to be in compliance with the rules. If a player is terminated, her league fee is not refundable.

Pace of Play:  LPGA Amateurs NNJ supports Ready Golf and Maintain Your Position.  

LPGA Amateurs NNJ endorses the Double Par Policy.  If you have a handicap, your score will be your ESC handicap maximum amount of strokes.  If you are establishing a handicap, your score is a maximum of 10.

You are considered out of position when you reach the tee of a:

  • Par 3 and the group in front of you has already gone on to the next tee.
  • Par 4 and the group in front of you is already on the green.
  • Par 5 and the group in front of you is getting ready to hit onto the green.

Most leagues are designed so that, throughout the season, individuals will play with all the other members of their league. Playing golf with various individuals, much like playing a new golf course, offers different challenges and opportunities.

Your coordinator determines the format to be played each week. Your participation in the various games/competitions is part of the structure designed to help you enjoy the sport and social aspects of the league. Remember that your coordinator works hard to bring enjoyment and skill improvement to your league.

LPGA Amateurs NNJ chapters operate with the goal to provide an opportunity for women to play golf in a supportive environment.  If you have any concerns or questions, speak with your league coordinator or e-mail Janine O'Connor, Leagues Chair at Leagues.
